Learning to Grow
It's fitting that fast-growing Trinity Christian School applied lessons learned from its existing building when it embarked on a new expansion.
"When we began working on the addition, we were initially looking at using the same type of wall assembly as the existing building," said architect Tom Bajt. "But since the school had been experiencing high energy bills, we looked for ways to enhance the quality of the exterior wall relative to the insulation. We saw how unique the THERMAX™ Wall System was and decided to incorporate it into the design. The biggest benefits we saw were that the system can help reduce energy bills and eliminate issues related to moisture and air infiltration."
